Child Absence

Following Government legislation, we are unable to authorise requests for holidays during term time. A referral will be made to Haringey Local Authority and you may be issued with a Fixed Penalty Notice or prosecuted in a Magistrates Court if an unauthorised holiday is taken.

Please be advised that leave of absence in term time is not a right and will only be granted under exceptional circumstances. Each case is considered individually; however, leave will not usually be granted if your child already has low attendance or the leave adversely affects your child’s education and ability to achieve. Also your child may be removed from the school roll meaning you would have to re-apply for a place.

Please see the form attached and information on Fixed Penalty Notices.
